The final outcome for the Canucks' prospects:

Making the Cut

Damien Brunner - Impressive in camp and starting on a line with Datsyuk and Zetterberg. The Wings were blown out in their home opener.

Kyle Palmieri - Also strong in camp, starting on a line with Perry and Getzlaf, playing on his off-wing. Popped a goal in the season opener.

Cory Conacher - Another winger with great linemates, Conacher is starting on a line with Lecavalier and Purcell, and put up a goal and an assist in the opener.

Dougie Hamilton - Starting on the third pairing, with occasional stints with Dennis Seidenberg. Expected to stay up all season.

Brenden Dillon - Was seen as a lock to make it, and didn't disappoint. Starting on a second pairing with Larsen, throwing five hits in the opener.

David Warsofsky - A surprise for the opening roster in Boston, Warsofsky is currently the 7th d-man, and will likely be demoted when Aaron Johnson is healthy.

Christopher Nihlstorp - Seems to have beat out Richard Bachman as back-up to Kari Lehtonen, but speculation is Bachman may be back once he gets into game shape, after sitting out for the lockout.

Missing the Cut

Beau Bennett - Was strong in camp, but lost out to Eric Tangradi, possibly due to waiver eligibility. Will see time later this year for sure.

Jayson Megna - A surprise invite had a great camp but was highly unlikely to actually make the team.

Mike Hoffman - Had a strong camp but as expected was the odd man out. LIkely the first call-up for Ottawa.
